Boivin has been running this club like an old boy fraternity and I'm glad he is gone. The freedom and leeway this guy gave to the media in this city is disgusting.

I really hope there's a complete house cleaning on the horizon, even if I like Gauthier and Martin's work so far. It just baffles me how organizations like Philly and Tampa can go from crap to contender overnight, and Montreal always seems to be exactly the same year after year. We need a new culture in this club.
hope so too. boivin did a fine job on the marketing side, but couldn't keep his yap shut when it came to the language / coach stuff and of course the nepotism within the hockey dept. not slapping a temporary title on gauthier and then performing due diligence to find the Best gm mind for the best hockey club in the world was ****ing unacceptable

Something tells me he maybe going to help the Quebec City group in helping get a NHL franchise.

His experience and background gives them that much more creditability with the NHL.

It. Is. A. Business. Role.

The ONLY hockey part of the job is hiring/firing the GM.

The odds of Gauthier being fired between now and June 30th, 2011 are slim to none.

The only way it happens is if he commits some kind of crime or huge PR disaster.

So again, from a hockey fan perspective, who the hell cares if he's sticking around for a year?
It is primarily a business role, but the president is also the person responsible for setting the organizational culture. Things like the way the media is granted full access to the team (which is not the case in many organizations), the way Pierre Gauthier was hired, the decisions on certain "hiring policies" this club employs...That comes from the president.

I find that the last few years, we've seen a big drop in professionalism from the organization. For example...When Latendresse almost missed a game because he was sleeping. I mean, that is completely ridiculous to begin with, but what's worse is that the guy was telling reporters about it and laughing. That's completely unprofessional to me...He should have never been allowed to let that story get out in the public. I don't blame him for that, I blame the organization for making him feel like it was ok to say that.

The way the organization has mis-managed the youth is another big issue for me. I know that the responsibility is on the GM, on pro scouts and the like...But at the end of the day, it trickles down from the top. It is the president who is ultimately responsible for ensuring that everyone under him is upholding the standards that this organization wants to base itself on. If the GM isn't doing his job, or the scouts or the head of development or whoever...Ultimately it's the president's job to make sure that the right people are in place to make sure the job gets done.

I don't think he's been doing that the last few years.

Financially? He's amazing...From a marketing perspective? Amazing. It was under him that the Habs became "cool" again...He's also responsible for those annoying "fake-fans" as we call them...But the Habs are relevant and popular again despite being average to below average for several years now.

All he cared about was selling merchandise, getting great sponsorhip deals and selling tickets. He did all 3 very very well. Too bad he never cared for the on ice product

I wonder how many pages this thread will get to. If this kind of thing happened on another teams board I doubt it would get much further than 1-2 pages.

There seems to be a lot of blind hatred in this thread toward a guy who helped get the habs out of the basement. The arena wasn't full when he took over. Now it seems impossible to empty.

It's like we get tired of everybody after 2 years around here and when they get fired we're happy, like if the next guy will SURELY be better and we'll never want him fired because his opinion will obviously be on par with our own.

Get a grip, you'll want Geoff out in 3 years max.
